Ask Captain Dramatic

Image Hosted by

Tomorrow is the first day of third grade for Captain Dramatic. He has always loved school, even though the principal and I are on a first name basis. When CD gets bored in class he tends to disrupt the entire class. He is in a very good school, with great teachers (for the most part), and the administration there is truly concerned for all children, and probably believed in "no child left behind" as a personal motto before it became a political catch phrase. Even through his ups and downs, he loves school. He gets excited every year, and spends a great deal of time picking out his clothes for the first day.

Me: (After a long quiet absence, which always makes me nervous) What are you doing?
CD: Picking out my clothes for tomorrow.
Me: Why?
CD: Because I want to be sure I look good on the first day!
Me: For Natalia?
CD: Mom! *sigh* (With great resignation, knowing he can't lie to me) Yes.
Me: *chuckling* Ok, just don't wear the homework shirt on the first day of school!
CD: (Appearing at computer room door holding said T-shirt) Aw, mom! That is the one I want to wear!
Me: No! It may impress Natalia, but it won't impress your teacher. At least wait until the second day of school.
CD: Oh, alright.

By the way, the homework shirt is the latest in a long line of "shirts with sayings". He had to have it. Here's a picture of the front of the T-Shirt.

So, tonight's festivities didn't stop there.

Dad-E: She so knows you!
CD: Who?
Dad-E: Your mom! She so knows you!
CD: That so sucks.
Me: Guys, com'mon! (They were just playing around, but I was trying to type, and wanted quiet, so I could hear myself think.)
Dad-E: He started it! (still playing around of course)
Me: I am soooo going to beat someone!
Dad-E: That cat?
CD: *promptly produces the cat who it totally unaware*
Me: *laughing*
Dad-E: (to CD) High five! I set 'em up, you knock 'em down!

You see what I live with?! Yeah, you're right. I really wouldn't have it any other way.
